With a decade of experience, owner and master aesthetician Holly Adams leads an expert staff of Aveda specialists who treat clients to purifying facials and body treatments at Azalea Aveda Day Spa and Salon.

The pampering continues with a gentle massage before a Green Science plant peel strips away blemishes with a 30 percent glycolic-acid solution that helps to prevent redness, irritation, and spontaneous combustion. Alternatively, aestheticians swaddle frames with a dry wrap imbued with essences of rosemary and peppermint to awaken senses. While clients lounge in mummified bliss, nimble hands massage scalps and worn-out feet.
